*** a WoRld WiThOuT MaRKeRs ***

Janie Mac - I haven't posted here in a while! Time keeps whizzing by...

The Blackrock craft fair went really well! It was great fun and my button moon blooms got a great reaction from the crowd. As did Miss Arabella, my mannequin/promo girl who came along for the ride!!! Phew, the hard work was definitely worth it and I learnt a lot along the way. It so nice to know that there are people out there who like my stuff - there's nothing better than meeting your customer face to face. I even got to meet some of my fellow team members from the Crafty Ireland etsy street team too! >>>

Gorgeous, cute and colourful designer wear for kiddies - all handmade by Sarah. I'm hoping she will start making stuff for big girls like me, I love her eye for detail! Her work even inspired the girlies outfit in my art journal page :)*

Adorable with a capital A - go check out Carol's shop and you'll see what I mean! Very cute n' kitsch n' totally collectible! ;)*

Chloe makes the most madly whimsical Kawaii accessories I have ever seen. She is bopping around the country sightseeing at the mo but be sure to bookmark her wonderful etsy - its an experience not to be missed!

If you have the time for a wee window shop you should pop in and see Clodagh's amazing handcrafted silver jewellery! I have a pair of her earrings and they are so lovely and beautifully crafted!

After the craft fair, Mr Mac & me had some time together work free - we organised a trip to Manchester to see Oasis play live and had an excellent weekend livin' it up for a change! If you are ever in town you must check out the Angel pub - seriously the best food {and ale according to Mr Mac} I've had in an age! bliss...
P.S My 'Sunday Morning' bloom made it to the frontpage of! Its also features in the etsy gift guide too. I'm having a yart sale (yard + art =yart!) to celebrate - free worldwide shipping and a complimentary pair of graffiti drop earrings with every bloom sold! ;)*
Offer ends this Sunday 14th June - Don't miss out!

Love the marker illustration!!! I'm hooked on markers, myself.

So great that the fair was a good experience. And how awesome to see Oasis!! Wow!!

PS - think there will be a sequel to your mix tape swap???

ahaaa! yeah we should definitely do that again Katie! I loved seeing the returns for that swap - but what format could we use? Maybe chunkies?
